I have been offered Altuve, Lahair, Markakis, Trumbo, and Jason Hammel for Votto, Moustakas, and Morrow. Any thoughts on a counter-trade? This is a keeper league, for up to three years.

Votto is the best player involved by ten miles. Moustakas is just heating up into what could be a great player. Morrow in his last few starts is doing the same.
Altuve is decent but provides no upgrade over what you already have, Lahair could fall apart or continue hitting but no one really knows as he is still very much an unknown quantity, Trumbo fights for playing time, Markakis is decent at best and Hammels has been good for a month.
Quantity does not equal quality.
You would be giving up the best player involved, easily, and probably Moustakas and Morrow are the next best players involved as well.
Thanks. That helps cement my doubts. Lahair is nice this year, but very unproven. You're right; Votto is in his prime and heating up. Morrow has been sick lately. I just like to see if anyone has any thoughts on counter-offers, or, in this case, if me even looking at it for more than a minute is a joke. Thanks for the feedback.
